## Addition of Like Fractions with Same Denominators

When adding like fractions, we add the numerators and keep the denominators same.

Step 1: Make sure the fractions have the like denominator.
Step 2: Add the numerators together.
Step 3: Keep the denominators same.
Step 4: Simplify the fraction, if needed.

Here's an example:

Step 1: The denominators are the same, which is 2.
Step 2: Add the numerators: 6 + 3 = 9.
Step 3: Keep the denominator: The denominator remains 2.
Step 4: Write the answer: The sum of the fractions is 9/2.
